What is a Hot Chocolate Bomb?
Hot chocolate bombs are hollow spheres of chocolate that you place in your mug and pour steamed milk over to melt and release the inside yumminess!! Bombs can be made from white, milk or dark chocolate or even chocolate that is a variety of colors! Inside you can have hot chocolate mix, marshmallows, peppermints, or a variety of candy!
How can I make Hot Chocolate Bombs?
You can purchase items to make these treats at home. There are a variety of videos that show you how on platforms like YouTube or TikTok. Supplies can easily be purchased at local grocery stores but the tricky item to find right now are the silicon molds for the spheres. You can find some on Amazon but many are out of stock. Be watching or order now for perfect winter treats even after the holidays.
You’ll need to melt your chocolate in a mold and let that cool. Pop them out of the molds once they are cool, fill one half with your hot cocoa mix, marshmallows and any other fillings then ‘seal’ two halves from your molds together with more melted chocolate. Then you can be creative with the outside and make drizzles of melted chocolate, sprinkles, or just leave them plain.
